School Supplies and Challenges

Part of my j-o-b is to participate with our local builders association. I chair the public affairs committee there and for the most part, its pretty fun. Sure sometimes it would be easier to quit and just show up for the fun stuff, but then other times I know that what I am doing is so worth it. Right now, we are doing a school supply drive to help kids whose parents are out of work. The construction slump has hit our local economy pretty hard and I talk to people every day who are really struggling to keep it together. Sometimes it really breaks my heart. I just hope that what we are doing will really make a difference to someone.
One of my creative teams, digiMom Designs , has her store at Stone Accent Studio. The forums there are great, and some of the challenges are just unbelievable! The Color Challenge seems to get the most hits and I just had to participate. The real challenge, for me anyway, was trying to stay within the color constraints. I don't normally scrap with bright colors and I had a hard time coming up with bright patterns. My preview skills need a bit of work, as you really cant see the papers! But there are a few things in this little kit that I am really going to have to scrap with!
ETA: password on 4shared has been removed! I apologize!!!
Pick up the elements here and the papers here.
